Why You Should Attend
Using a series of hypotheticals, a highly experienced faculty will examine key ethics issues that can arise while providing remote legal services in pro bono and public interest practice, as well as best practices to avoid these ethics problems.
What You Will Learn
Using “all-new” hypotheticals illustrating ethical issues arising in remote legal services/pro bono representation in different practice settings, (including immigration, housing, consumer, and nonprofit board service) as the basis for discussion, topics to be reviewed and analyzed include:
- Who is the client?
- Confidentiality, conflicts, communication and privilege issues
- Scope of representation: how limited scope representation works for law firm and in-house counsel
- Representing clients with diminished capacity
- Nonprofit board service
Who Should Attend
This program will benefit all attorneys engaged in pro bono representation working in law firms or in-house, as well as attorneys practicing in nonprofit and legal services organizations.
